It reminded me of princess Diana's final moments. Did your camera scare this small guy ?

Sorry for the flattened image, i am still a noob on pp. i use picasa to convert raw to jpeg and then ps cs 3 to compress it by reducing the quality.

These 3 are different guys... they were happily buzzing around as if I wasn't around.

The last guy got caught & eventually wiggled out off the web.

Thanks TG, thanks to all those who tried counting the bees, now I get an idea of how 'unemployed' we are in a corporate country ! Olden days it was just 'killing fly' but now its 'counting fly'.

Once upon a time, a wise man called 'Samurai' somewhere in the coastal Karnataka said "DSLR is a money-pit". Nobody understood that until they bought one. I was happy with my P&S canon for many years. Someone told me "you will be a great 'artist' if you buy a DSLR". I started with a D60, not that happy with the 18-55 kit, went for a bargain buy of 55-200, but again not being happy with the range, I am reading all about telezooms upto 500mm. Someone told me "you need a 'prime' for better sharpness and low light snaps", so I have a 35mm 1.8 as immediate target. A photographer friend of mine said "you should get hold of 80-200mm 2.8 for best of best". Did he mean 'sell all what I have including my wife and kids' and get on the streets ?

If you find a man like this anywhere in India, please dont ignore !! (view from a Nokia N70).

@Pramod, the mustard seeds look like Gulab Jamuns

What pramod missed to mention is that all these were taken with the kit lens reversed. There was no reverse mount, so he kept the aperture open with one finger and held the lens close to the cam body by hand and clicked these.

Pramod, impressive stuff for a noob.
